Translated headword: Heraiskos, Heraiscus

An Egyptian man; this man was very clever at understanding [things], but not a powerful fighter for the truth, nor [keen] at tracing or pursuing the roads which proceed out from this. For this man, on the contrary, had been allotted good fortune.[1]
Greek Original:
Ἡραί̈σκος, ἀνὴρ Αἰγύπτιος: οὗτος ἦν μὲν συνεῖναι δεινότατος, ἀγωνιστὴς δὲ οὐκ ἰσχυρὸς ἀπὸ τῆς ἀληθείας, οὐδὲ τὰς ἔξω φερούσας ἀπὸ ταύτης ὁδοὺς ἀνιχνεῦσαι καὶ διεξελθεῖν. οὗτος γὰρ ἐς τοὐναντίον ἐκεκλήρωτο τὴν εὐμοιρίαν.
Damascius, Life of Isidore fr.114 Asmus, Zintzen 182, Athanassiadi 76D; again at sigma 1536. For Heraiskos see already eta 450.
[1] Athanassiadi understands εὐμοιρία as "being blessed at birth with intuition"; cf. epsilon 3586.
